How Chiropractic Care Can Help After a Car Accident
Car accidents are a common occurrence in the modern world. From minor bumps and bruises to more serious injuries, being involved in a car accident can seriously impact your quality of life. Whether you were in a mere fender bender or a serious crash, your spinal alignment could have paid the price. The best way to adjust your alignment or receive drug-free pain relief is to make an appointment with a trained chiropractor. Not addressing this pain or these neck and spinal injuries can have serious impacts on your health and greatly diminish your overall quality of life. Here are some common car accident injuries:
- Whiplash and Neck Injuries
- Compressive Nerves
- Muscle Pain and Strains
- Separated Ribs
- Back Pain
- Sprains and Strains
Whiplash and Neck Injuries
Whiplash and neck injuries are one of the most common injuries to occur from a car crash. If you were in a rear-impact car accident, you most likely received a good dose of whiplash. Indeed, the abrupt backward and forward nature of this type of accident causes the cervical spine to be whipped back and forth, knocking the musculoskeletal system out of proper alignment. This can lead to mild to severe neck pain, compressed nerves, back pain, muscle pain, and muscle strains. Separated ribs and overall bodily sprains and strains also occur due to the impact experienced during a common car accident.
Going to the hospital for medical attention is essential, but will not fix the underlying back issues or spinal pain. Medication will provide quick relief, but chiropractic care or massage therapies are the only true ways to address the underlying spinal and muscle injuries you received from the car accident.
